WOW: Bordeaux Beauties!

WOW: Wine of the Week

Bordeaux Beauties: Baron La Rose Selections

Bordeaux Beauties - Baron La Rose
Trying new wines from another region can be intimidating.  Have you ever wanted to start drinking more "old world" wines, but are apprehensive both about the product as well as the price tag?!

Look no further than this week's WOW: Wine of the Week selections for your first taste of Bordeaux.  NEW to are two Bordeaux Blends from Baron La Rose...and both are UNDER $10 per bottle!

Winery Notes

"The Baron La Rose blend is carefully created from old vines (30 years), planted in the best Bordeaux 'terroirs.' A low yield, a chalky-clay soil, appropriate vinification and traditional aging in oak barrels." - Winery Notes

Baron La Rose Vieilles Vignes White (Bordeaux Blanc) 2011 Tasting Notes

Average age of vines are over 25 years. Medium-light body dry white wine in golden color with green lights. Aromas of flowers, grapefruit and slightly vanilla hints. Fruity wine with green apple and slightly honeydew melon on palate. Positive acidity offers freshness finish.
Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon, 5% Muscadelle

Baron La Rose Vieilles Vignes Bordeaux 2008 Tasting Notes

Medium bodied dry red wine in ruby red color. Aromas of vanilla and toasty notes with red fruits flavors. Round and soft tannins with blackcurrant and ripe raspberry. On palate, wood and fruits gives well-balance body to this wine. Nice wine in long after taste.
Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc.
